At least you didn't have to use one of those gawd awful 6 inch cowl hoods...looks real good!

- Victor intake
- 1050 dominator that's being sent out to Mark Sullens for an E85 conversion
- I still need to measure and order push rods after everything is mocked up
- I've also picked up a new B&M trans pan for my C4 trans
- I still need axles, spool, and drive shaft for safety
What made you choose the FRPP balancer? I'm debating upon using it or the ATI.
I'm also considering using Randy for a cam as well. Any feedback on this experience?

I used Randy for some machine work. He is a good guy and does good work. I'd do more business with him. I have no regrets.

I chose the FRPP balancer based on the opinion of the majority of the builders between the 2 BBF sites. All claim it's a decent balancer for my power level.
Randy knows his stuff and comes across as a no nonsense kind of person. He gave me a list of specifics that he needed to know about my engine/cylinder head combo along with some specifics about transmission/converter, gear ratio, vehicle weight....you get the picture. When I had everything figured out, I sent him the list and called him to go over everything. So far, I like it...but I don't have much seat time yet due to other issues I've been dealing with.

It’s been quite a while since my last update. I had some engine issues last season and never got any decent runs...Fresh short block with scat h-beam rods, probe flat top pistons, Kaase oil pump combined with my SCJ heads and cam from the original combo. (Still 466 cubes).
Spent a lot of time last summer refining and tuning the combo. I was rewarded with an off the trailer 10.70 @ 129.xx miles per hour. This was a foot brake launch and only shifting 6,200-6,300 rpm.
There’s plenty more left in it. I just have to wait for spring!
